romney, the obama camp thinks that plays right into the expectations and now it's raising them very high for mitt romney to have to shake it up in these debates, harris. >> harris: as we know from carl cameron that mr. romney has been at the campaign headquarters in boston preparing. why is the president in nevada? >> well, it's a battle ground state as you've noted earlier and i remember covering john kerry in 2004. a debate against the president, then president bush in arizona and did his debate prep in new mexico, a media attention in the battle ground state and he's trying to do that president obama in nevada and the foreclosure crisis and the unemployment rate double digits and the president knows economic challenges here and hoping he'll get a little play for his message and his plans and rally and it's going to start a few moments behind me with someone with early voting starting in nevada in a couple of weeks and they feel good in the obama camp. nevada even though it's hard hit, the polls show the race very close and they think mitt romney should be far ahead with the economic m
to get elected. and for the president, voters are not convinced they wanted to go the romney's direction, but extending where we are for the next four years is not an attractive process. he's got to walk that tight rope by saying we are moving in the right direction. and also kind of give people a sense of the next four years that are going to be better in their arrives than the previous four have been. >> sometimes we look ahead and see that yes, what these candidates say is going to be important and pivotal what their body language has said. who can forget the gore-bush debate, and you have to wonder betwn these two candidates, romney and obama, who's likely to win, who's likely to be too breathy, or maybe be an easy read just by finally expressions that could potentially hurt their performance? >> first of all, debates have -- there's no subsequent record of whether debates have been significant or not. certainly in 1980, to some extent in 1992. if you have looked at the debates from 1996, they haveat times and at times they haven't. what matters is not always the lines of arguments b

mitt romney is an experienced debater. he has been through this many times. and romney's campaign is saying obama gione of the best speakers to walk the earth, ever. >> we talked about this earlier, talking about biden's sharp special witty. even the number twos are doing a lot of praising right now. but for the most part, what we have heard is the managing of expectations. sort of the white house and the campaign, on the 'bama campaign suggesting that the president is rusty and hasn't debated anybody in four years. what do you make of that? >> president obama has been thinking that mitt romney would be his opponent, his entire presidency because mitt romney has been running for so long. but by the time the debate comes on wednesday night, both of the men will have had five straight days of prep preparation. they will be plenty prepared. they have everything they want to say -- >> i am having nightmare flashbacks. charlie, what do you think that the candidates need to be to be considered quote/unquote the winner? or will they both claim victory regardless? >> i don't think we will
